We scheduled a 90 minute sail in the afternoon and truly enjoyed every minute. Todd was wonderful at answering our questions and was a delightful host. We hope to schedule a longer sail soon!

Absolutely outstanding, I wouldn't change a thing. Todd is not only great at what he does but he's happy to answer questions about what he's doing and how a boat (ship?) like that works, and sailing in general. We'll be back!
